The iGrow is specifically designed to treat androgenetic alopecia, or genetic baldness, and so is also recommended for anyone who wants to maintain their full head of healthy hair but is at risk of following their close relatives, who are losing or have already lost their hair.
Current evidence suggests that the iGrow is most effective when used exactly as directed. Every session of low level laser therapy should be succeeded by a rest day period, which is why treatments should occur on alternating days.
If hair loss goes untreated, it gets progressively worse. Once you have completed the initial six month treatment period, it is recommended that you maintain your hair growth with one to two sessions per week.
It’s recommended that you start LLLT sessions as soon as you notice thinning hair or excessive hair loss. Incorporate LLLT treatment with the iGrow into your schedule to maintain the hair that you do have and to regrow lost hair.
LLLT can be used to treat patients 18 years and over. Consult your primary care physician if you’re under 18.
LLLT has long been used to help heal wounds and is suitable for use immediately following hair transplant surgery to promote healing and to improve the results of hair graft surgery. Some data suggests that when LLLT is used in patients who have had transplants, it can reduce recovery time and increase the thickness of hair.
The scalp is very sensitive following hair transplant surgery and so it is incredibly important that any device used does not directly touch the scalp, so that it does not damage the transplant. It is important that the device deliver LLLT to the whole scalp, and currently the iGrow is the only device to deliver LLLT to the whole scalp with no direct contact.
The iGrow was designed to be used with no medical supervision at home, at the office and on the move. There are safety mechanisms in place for the LEDs and lasers, and a sensor ensures that the lasers are switched on only when the iGrow is placed over your head and scalp. The iGrow hair rejuvenation system is an effective and safe means of regrowing hair and maintaining a healthy, full head of hair in the comfort of your own home.
No. The iGrow has five pre-programmed settings. Select the program you want, and it will run automatically.
Each person’s treatment is different, but generally, you’ll see a reduction in hair loss within around 8-12 weeks. New hair growth should be noticeable and Hair tends to become thicker and noticeably fuller within approximately 26 weeks or 6 months.
Testimonials and studies have shown that there are no significant side effects associated with the use of LLLT or iGrow.
iGrow is an incredibly powerful LLLT treatment for use at home and is equivalent in terms of output and power to most physician-administered lasers. Additionally, the design of the iGrow’s helmet and headphone maintains a constant distance of 3cm from the scalp (clinical lasers are typically 6-8cm). The device is also portable, which means that you can use it on the move, at home or even at the office, and you can even listen to music and other audio whilst using it. It is far more convenient and much more cost efficient administering your own treatment at home than going to a doctor’s office three to four times per week.
The iGrow system is completely hands-free, provides coverage for the entire scalp whilst focussing on key hair loss areas, and is very simple to use. Compared to other handheld devices, such as laser combs that need to be manually manipulated every 4-20 seconds, the iGrow is much more efficient, the laser light dwell time on the scalp is substantially increased for better results and very simple and easy to use.
The iGrow hair rejuvenation system is not generally recommended for patients who are shiny bald, or who have experienced very significant hair loss. This is because although there is likely to be be some improvement, it is unlikely to be particularly significant.
iGrow is regulated by all EU and USA governing bodies for safety. Class 3R Lasers are used (internationally recognised efficient and safe). iGrow is also manufactured to medical standard ISO13485.
The iGrow only uses cool low energy Lasers and LEDs. Hundreds of studies have demonstrated that LLLT is effective and safe for use when treating hair loss, as well as various medical conditions. LLLT has been utilised in a number of forms in hair loss clinics for many years.
Yes the iGrow can be used for treating hair loss in both men and women.
Speak to your primary care physician for advice.
It is perfectly safe to use the iGrow with medicines such as Rogaine™ (also known as minoxidil) and Propecia™ (also known as finasteride).

LLLT, or low level laser therapy, uses light (LEDs), Lasers or a combination of the two at a very low energy, within a set wavelength, in order to treat specific problems. The lasers used in LLLT are also called “cold” lasers. Studies have demonstrated that it can treat everything from acne to carpal tunnel to hair loss in both women and men. Although we do not yet fully understand the mechanism behind how LLLT works, it is believed that the light energy from the Laser/LEDs is absorbed by cells, which triggers a healing response and boosts activity within said cells. In treating hair loss, LLLT is said to increase regrowth by 35-37%.
Multiple clinical studies have shown the effectiveness of Low Level Laser Therapy on various conditions including hair loss in men and women, carpal tunnel syndrome and acne. The exact mechanism is not fully understood, but the most recent research has identified that LLLT is absorbed into the cells, triggering enhanced cellular activity. In other words, LLLT makes aging cells more active, thereby increasing their effectiveness in hair restoration. Recent clinical trials have shown a 35% to 40% growth of new hair.
LLLT for Hair growth was first discovered in 1967 by a Hungarian Scientist whilst using LLLT for a different medical purpose.
Yes. There have been multiple clinical studies to support the effectiveness of LLLT in preventing hair loss and promoting hair re-growth in both women and men.
Lasers are used because they are produced at one specific wavelength, stimulating and energizing hair follicles and promoting growth. LEDs have a broader wavelength of light and are gentler, covering a larger area, which means that they’re ideal for use on large areas such as the scalp. Devices that combine both are particularly suitable for hair regrowth.
Dermatologists and hair physicians in the US and Europe endorse the use of LLLT Devices for the treatment of hair loss and to re-grow hair.
Wavelength is important during LLLT. The wavelength used in iGrow is 655nm, as this is most effective and efficient in terms of absorption of energy for hair re-growth.
Most at-home devices use either lasers or LEDs. iGrow uses both high quality Lasers and LEDs. This particular form of LLLT, using this combination of both Laser and LED and energy sources, is known to be particularly effective at treating hair loss.
No. Some devices have a greater power output and will therefore yield differing results. If the device is not powerful enough, it will not properly stimulate the hair follicles and will not promote hair regrowth. Many at-home devices are handheld and manually operated, and use Lasers or LEDs, not both. Laser combs and brushes do not cover the whole scalp and rely entirely on the user to provide any kind of consistent application, which means that it is unlikely that they will be able to yield consistent long term significant results. In comparison, the iGrow hands free, is fully automated and the helmet keeps the lasers at a required fixed distance from the scalp, which means that the light energy is consistently applied to all areas of the scalp throughout the full duration of the treatment.
The effectiveness of LLLT treatment is based on the bio stimulation of cells to energise hair follicles, promoting regrowth. Research suggests that “pulsing” light can be more effective at promoting re-growth as it mimics cellular respiration. Generally, LLLT devices therefore use pulsed light, rather than continuous wave energy to ensure maximum results.
Yes, although it is not necessary to use LLLT alongside medication for hair loss in order to regrow hair. With the 10 year expected life of the iGrow device and a purchase price of £595, this results in it costing only £1.15 per week to treat, prevent hair loss and to re-grow more hair. iGrow does not need the help of alternative products to treat hair loss.
